Valve releases the public beta version for SteamOS

Valve has just rolled out a public beta version of SteamOS to the masse. Just in case you were wondering what the heck SteamOS is all about, it happens to be an open-sourced Linux-based operating system, and Valve claims that your experience with it would be most satisfying if you already happen to carry a decent amount of previous experience with the operating system prior to giving the public beta version a go.

As it announced earlier this week, Valve shipped its 300 Steam Machine prototypes to its randomly selected beta testers late today. That announcement was accompanied by the first public release of SteamOS, the currently-in-beta Linux-based operating system that will power Valve’s new gaming-PCs-turned-consoles.
